DBQ Rewrites

This weekend, you will have an opportunity to rewrite your DBQ if you so choose.  If you do rewrite, please make sure that you follow the correct MelCON format:

Main Idea with three CHANGES identified
Evidence for Change #1
Link for Change #1
Evidence for Change #2
Link for Change #2
Evidence for Change #3
Link for Change #3

We used this example in class.

The social and economic changes brought about by the Neolithic Revolution include the domestication of animals, the building of large, permanent settlements and, most importantly, the creation of specialized labor. First of all, in document A there is a picture of a dog walking with an early human settler, showing that dogs were one of the first animals to be domesticated. This is a social effect of the Neolithic Age because dogs have helped humans with hunting and protection. Secondly, during the Neolithic Revolution permanent settlements starting appearing along rivers all over the world, as seen in the map of river valley civilizations in Document G. This is a social impact of the Neolithic Revolution because these settlements soon developed into cities which demonstrated the rise in population due to the farming along rivers. Most importantly, document B is a picture of workers in Sumer and demonstrates that some cities had people performing different jobs such as farmers, scribes and metalworkers. This is an economic effect of the Neolithic Revolution because due to the creation of cities, people could now do various jobs and sell their products or labor. This helped create a more advanced economy in human society. In conclusion, the domestication of animals, the building of large permanent cities and, most importantly the specialization of labor were the most important effects of the Neolithic Revolution and led to the creation of modern human societies.

The rewrite is due on Tuesday!
